Akris – Pre Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-To-Wear

Akris’ Albert Kriemler brought his signature photo prints back for Resort. “After a couple of seasons of quiet collections, I thought it was time,” he said. Inspired by the Netherlands’ vast tulip fields, he worked with a photographer on two exclusive prints of the orderly planted flowers; they were among his boldest ever. An oversize T-shirt dress was the canvas for a landscape; zoomed in, that landscape functioned like stripes on a pleated skirt. The tulips’ natural hues provided the collection’s heady colors: shocking pink and orange, bright yellow. Those shades may be out of the Akris client’s comfort zone, but Kriemler sagely balanced them with pale neutrals, as well as navy (on a fully reversible sheared mink coat) and black. As ever, the materials amazed. One dress and coat were made from a poly thread that he had stitched into a micro repeating tulip motif. Very close to weightless and not prone to wrinkle, the material is ideal for packing, Kriemler pointed out. For your own trip to the Netherlands’ flower fields
